Hi everyone, I'm picking up my 9 week old miniature shnauzer puppy on Monday and have been trying to research good, healthy treats that are suitable for early training. The majority of the treats sold by the big pet shops seem to be unsuitable for pups under 3months. I am of course planning on giving her chunks of raw veggies (carrots etc were always a favourite of the dogs I've had before) but this is the first time I've a young puppy and I want to give her good, high quality rewards for her early training. Any ideas?! Also, here is a picture because I am incredibly excited and can't help showing everyone!

Little bits of cooked chicken, sardine cake, liver cake.

She's beautiful. smile
Just keep some puppy kibble (from her recommended daily amount) in your pocket and use as treats. Far better for her than specific treats until she's big enough for carrots or similar.

Not looked at age but natures menu do soft squidgy ones that can be broken up, or thrive do 100% freeze dried meat ones

No tips or advice, but just came on to coo at the picture - she's lovely. We're picking up our own mini puppy in about six weeks - can't wait!
